It's fun to have a cocktail now and again, but sometimes during the work week I love the idea of it sans alcohol. This week the evenings have been gorgeous in Minnesota - 70s, sun high in the sky until after 6pm, perfect to unwind after the workday and you want something fun in your pretty glass!
I love an Aperol Spritz. I enjoyed my first back in college while studying abroad in Rome. It was pure magic! Gosh, I bet I have a photo somewhere in an album (yes, it was back in the 90's before cell phones and their cameras!).There was cafe off the piazza by the Pantheon and some of my classmates and I decided we were ready for an afternoon break after classes. We sat outside under the umbrellas to enjoy the sights, sounds, and sips!
I've been trying some new Non-Alcoholic sips lately and wanted to share this one with you. It's easy to mix up and you can find alternate options to the brands below at your local stores. I am sharing the ones I use and enjoy and included links for easy access only, not for promotion.
